    Ladies and gentlemen, have you ever wondered what it means when people say things like "you need to be more dynamic" or "stop consolidating"? Never fear because today I'll explain just how you can be dynamic too using our flawless measurement system, The Roquentin Dynamic Alliance Measurement Index Here is how it works. Each alliance starts with a 50 in dynamic rating, the higher the dynamic rating you have, the more dynamic you are. This rating is continuously adjusted as alliances do any of the following things: Sign Treaties Non IQ alliance signs an IQ alliance: +10 Dynamic Rating IQ alliance signs an IQ alliance: +20 Dynamic Rating Non IQ alliance signs a Non IQ Alliance: -20 Dynamic Rating Cancel Treaties IQ alliance cancels a treaty with a Non IQ alliance: +20 Dynamic Rating IQ alliance cancels a treaty with an IQ alliance: +20 Dynamic Rating (or -20 Dynamic Rating if its convenient) Non IQ alliance cancels a treaty with an IQ alliance: -20 Dynamic Rating Non IQ alliance cancels a treaty with a Non IQ alliance: 0 Dynamic Rating Declare War Non IQ alliance declares war on an IQ alliance: -30 Dynamic Rating IQ alliance declares war on a Non IQ alliance: +5 Dynamic Rating (Would be +30 but IQ only preempts they swear) Non IQ alliance declares war on a Non IQ alliance: +50 Dynamic Rating And that is it. I hope this helps you and your friends to be as dynamic as possible.

    Since there aren't any knight themed alliances around here, my alliance would be called the Turd Knights. Gov lineup FA: Catsby MA: LPS Econ: Clarke's sister IA: the jack of all trades, the almighty Vacant Propaganda (Recruitment Staff): the HBE recruitment bot Brown would be the alliance color and we'd have just 1 treaty (the most legit of them all) - a PIAT with Noobs Army. EDIT: for some reason the flag and war flag aren't being displayed. ;_;

    Alliance name: The failures Color: It doesn't matter, all players are beige or grey Flag: The point of this alliance is to be the worst ever, we like players with a stupid nation setup and players with a lot of negative forum rep, we start a blitz doing fortify, we only do utter failures, our nations have negative revenue, we use nukes on 300 infra cities, we buy credits for 8M and then we redeem the credit for 5M, we declare war to Grumpy with all the nations under 1000 score and then the entire alliance goes into vacation mode, we are the ones who are not moved to Rose, we have 40 improvements slots all used for wind power, we have uranium enrichment program as first project and our nation in located in Europe, we do spy operations to terrorize civillians, things like that Protectorates: Arrgh Everyone can join

    I've always felt that an alliance needs a real driving gimmick to separate it from any other kind of alliance. NPO accomplishes this with their economic model and their personality cult, Arrgh accomplishes it with their anarchic and war-driven focus. Of course, the Nuke Bloc alliances make their gimmick well known. There are a few more alliances that have their own little gimmicks, but they know who they are. It seems to me as though every other alliance follows the same structure more or less - figurehead leader, a person leading one of the 4 departments and a lackey to help them out. There isn't much separating these alliances from one another aside from the name, flag, and the people running the departments. That being said, I've toyed with plenty of alliance gimmicks in the past. I told Yoda back in DB that we should always be assassinating spies, as our theme is assassins so we should be playing the part. Unluckily he turned me down. It is a bit difficult to say what I would like my gimmick to be, I've toyed with making alliances in the past - one being the Brotherhood of Steel, that fell through due to founding members being required elsewhere. The gimmick would be consistent propaganda and monthly wars. I also created the idea for the Advocates, it was initially called the Judiciary, that fell through because I went off to help found Iron Guard, the gimmick being everyone there was a fascist. Of course, that fell through right quick. I still have the charter if anyone wants to read it, but I fear that the project was much too ambitious even for me https://docs.google.com/document/d/1MC07X1XBzgXW2pB-JJAkdsPpYZsOnSWc5zzPAI1n194/edit. The Green Enforcement Agency was a dream I also shared, but Nate and Prez deleted their nations shortly before the creation date, the ultimate troll. The gimmick has been explained plenty of times but 'forced neutrality' is the motto. There are always plenty of talks regarding the formation of new alliances but more oft than not, they tend to fall through, for a myriad of reasons. From the above, I think my favourite was the Brotherhood. Initially, it was called the War Boys, named for the Mad Max cult, but the name was changed, obviously. Unfortunately, the flags I made for them were wiped not too long ago, so I can't show you the flags for any of the mentioned alliances. So Johnny, if you're going to make an alliance, make sure you're doing something that no one else has done yet.

    Might is All Overlord Kylo Ren walked away from his Holo Meeting with Supreme Leader Bruce Wayne, who had gone back to his spaceship for the time being, leaving Kylo in charge for a few months. Kylo called in General Hux and Admiral Phasma. They came to him and gave him a bow, listening to his orders. "Yes, Lord Kylo?" Hux said looking at him intrigued. "What would you have us do?" Kylo stood in front of them and spoke. "The Supreme Leader has requested that we find force sensitives among the population and train them in the ways of the Sith. They will be our special fighters." "How will we know who is force sensitive, Overlord?" Phasma asked curiously. "The ways of the force are virtually unknown here, if you disregard The Old Republic that is, but they don't count as they aren't native to this planet. I have found a compound that we can place into the citizens drinking water, which will show them up as force sensitive. And to find out who is worthy to be Sith, we will have a national event in 2 weeks time called The Purge. There will be only one law on that day for 24 hours and that is that no citizen will be allowed to leave the nation. Anyone that shows enough Sith Personality and who is force sensitive will go to the Sith Academy. Any force sensitives who show Jedi traits will be killed. Understand?" "Yes, Lord Kylo" Hux and Phasma said in unison. They thought this was an...odd plan. "Now," Kylo said. "After we have rounded up all the new Sith Acolytes and brought everything back to order, we will be putting up the following posters everywhere to recruit to the Stormtrooper Academy." He brought up the images of the posters on a screen. "Give these designs to the High Commander of the Interior. She is to make sure these are out at the correct time. Tell her also that she is to keep up the selective media and the School of Life which will now be called The School of The Order and will re-educate everyone in our ways, rather than the ways of that so called 'empire' that that woman, Alexia, had before." "Yes, Overlord." They said in unison again. "General Hux, I want you to max out our military capabilities to 100%. Build everything you can. Admiral Phasma I want you to do the same with the Navy. Do not fail me. Now go." They bowed again. "Right away, Lord Kylo." They went away and began to do as Kylo had ordered them to do. It would take a while, but it would be done otherwise they feared what might happen.

    So. I've been thinking. Some of us can't build alliances and want to, or don't have the resources or the money to do so. This will serve as a game of sorts to build your dream alliance, post a flag if you so wish. And give the government members you feel would best fit. Give your FA direction and a small synopsis of your mock alliance. We can judge them as we go. And see who has the best ideas. i will start with mine as am actually working towards this lol. Alliance name: Sinister Sister Souls color: Black flag: Government. FA head. Johnny Costello (myself) IA head @evilpiggyfoofoo (Arrgh) MA head @Insert Name Here (oblivion) FA direction. MdOaP with Nuclear knights, Alpha, and Fark NaP with World Task Force, Spanish Armanda and Stratagem. This alliance will aim to be small in numbers. About 12-15 members. City builds will be for 3k infrastructure and nuclear powers. The bank will offer first 12 city's and nrf .

    Upon a look at the Global politics the Regime decided to release the following maps to it's public to inform them of where is deemed Safe and where isn't. On a scale of Blue(being safe) to Red(very dangerous) a map of the homeland was created to make the areas safe to travel until the native threat was contained. As for the globe the Regime travel map was issued as follows: Blue: Travel Encouraged Green: Travel deemed safe Yellow: Caution when travelling Red: Travel ban to and from nation or region

    Although I don’t particularly have an idea for an alliance right now, I’ll drop this post - hopefully it helps someone that wants to start an alliance I wrote up a huge wall of text a while back - part of which discussed this. I’ve seen one too many alliances fail, and the reason that that happens is usually not due to external factors (necessarily) but more due to internal issues the Government doesn’t know how to handle. So, I’ve listed down a couple of things you should have down before you go ahead and make an alliance: Know Yourself, Find your Identity: a. What’s the goal? b. What sets you apart from other alliances? c. What kind of players are you attracting? b. Experience, and your own strengths Limits? What are those? b. Some alliances set artificial upper limits to the number of members they will accept. I’ve micro-managed 50 member alliances in war, and almost never failed them, but above that? My micro management’s efficiency will start to fall. c. Government types are also necessary to building a proper alliance - iNCi from eRep followed a very primus inter pares method of operation, and it worked for them. It might not for you. Is your MilCom centralised or decentralised? (Shoutout to Rose here last war) d. Artificial score inflation, keeping inactives, tax farms - are you okay with this? IA wise: a. Community building mother!@#$er, can you do it? b. Raising, and maintenance of activity on boards/Discord c. Guides - hit me up if you want one, I have written most down. Econ: a. Micro level stuff - audits, maximising profit etc. b. Macro Econ plan - growth rings Corollary 1. Tier’ing, artificial city upper limits. Corollary 2. Optimal taxation - Kemal would be more knowledgable than me on this, but the principles of taxation are similar in game - if you cross a certain threshold in terms of monetary/resource income, you’re potentially incurring massive losses in other areas (activity, desire to stay in the alliance, individual growth) MilCom: I will defer to people like vanek and Senry’s opinion here (you should see these guys go man) but the general outline for MilCom remains similar. I think micro MilCom stuff is pretty explanatory, so let’s go to this: a. Is micro management a thing for you or no? b. Discord activity is imperative to winning. c. Is your micro section looking good? Guides, knowledge of war mechanics, etc. For Macro: Macro-MilCom FA: Oh boy, boy o boy. I could go on about this all day, but let’s go over one very simple rule: Often times it doesn’t matter what you do, what matters is how people perceive that action. Remember this. 1. Learn how to spin things your way (narratives) 2. Keep a diplomat team if you can, when I was FA I did practically all work by myself, because I could. Find what suits you, implement. 3. Treaty chess - !@#$ is that? Simply put, you need to be capable of planning long term - looking at the bigger picture is more important. Your treaties should be based on two primary things, for the major part: a. FA policy alignment and Friendships b. Suitable addition to fighting capability (offensive: complimenting your tiers by adding to the places you’re weak in | defensive: adding to similar tiers so you have more backup) Above all, don’t give up ever. If you do that, you’ve lost the game. Other Skills: 1. Math 2. Spreadsheets 3. Programming Learn. Use. Prosper. (ps: I wrote this all on mobile so there might be a crapload of mistakes xdxd)

Note that expansion is allowed, but at a maximum of four provinces per month as to be as realistic as possible. This rule applies to nations under 75 provinces as well. Nations are permitted to own colonies, but at a maximum of 5 with no more than 20 provinces each. Provinces are unable to be moved from one location to another. The gifted land is also capped at four provinces per month. Land gained by a nation as a result of war can be more than this.) Thank you and enjoy Politics & War National Organic Roleplay

    Statement from King Ciel Wolf I shall be departing for Paris first thing in the morning tomorrow, accompanied by my second in hand, General Zwingli.

Other than that, we hope for the very best of results from this summit.

    The politics of this game would be 10x more interesting with protectionism treaties. Unfortunately, that isn't going to happen with the current game mechanics, as it is very difficult to force (or persuade) members not to purchase the cheapest option available. Would sheepy consider adding in a feature so that governments of various alliance can impose financial penalties on people who trade with certain other alliances? (The money would go into the alliance bank.)

    Protectionism (i.e. restricted trade) is pretty harmful to the economic development of your nation. So in that sense, protectionism somewhat exists. If you wanted to impose those sort of penalties on someone else, you could get a bunch of people to agree to embargo someone. For example, my nation is embargoed by almost everyone as that's one of the early objectives in the game. The trade page for me is largely only red, disabled offers, meaning if I was actually trying to play the game and trade with other players, I'd really struggle (like the effects of protectionism, or international sanctions.)
